Alex (and fellow Ziners),
I think a web site with WWII memorial physical sites is a great idea! A few times I've found out after visiting a country that there was a place or two that I would have liked to visit. Guide books often seem to concentrate on older historical places (which also happens to be a main point of interest for me) and more recent places get lost. It's also be nice to see places I haven't yet (or never will have) been.
By the way, people with relatives who died in the war while serving in the U.S. armed forces are registered at http://www.wwiimemorial.com The registry will tell which cemetery they are buried in. I have some relatives buried in France and Belgium that I wish I had looked up before going to those countries. (Any WWII vet can be listed - I put my Dad, Ed Czajka - a Purple Heart veteran, on it.)
